“Dear PoPville,

I live in a building on 16th Street, NW. I’ve lived here for the past two years in a studio apartment on the first floor. During my time here, I’ve realized that the landlords are slumlords of a truly spectacular caliber. There are serious problems with many tenants in this building who treat the entire building and surrounding grounds as their personal property, with no concern whatsoever for the general comfort, well-being, or cleanliness of the shared spaces.

“Dear PoPville,

I just wanted to write to share the story of a good Samaritan who helped me and my partner out with car trouble this evening in Kalorama.

Seaton Place, NW

A reader reports:

“I guess this is acceptable moving protocol now? The worst part – it takes up the sidewalk (no one with a wheel chair can pass) AND an entire parking spot on the Wednesday side of the road during street sweeping days!

I plan to clean it up tonight – but this is definitely ridiculous.

*Note – I saw these bad Samaritans on film & 311 has been called*”
